Why I Love Being an Introvert (and You Should Too!) | rosie abigail

Does anyone else feel like this is a bit of an extrovert’s world? No shade at those 50% of people who are extroverts. I mean, look at the phrase ‘living life to the full’. That makes me think of people who ignore regrets, make friends everywhere they go, always having their communication brain and raring […]

Post-COVID Bucket List - rosie abigail

(Well, I don’t know if we’ll ever be post-COVID, but you know what I mean…) Ya’ll ever get stuck thinking about your achievements and goals in life? Oh, that’s just my highly anxious brain? Ah. Right… Nah, I know we all get caught up in thinking about what we’ve done in life, or what we […]

Whoops… I Got Engaged! | rosie abigail

Flaylay of Rosie's hand around a blue mug, whilst she wears her engagement ring. There are pink and white flowers on the left.

Well, it looks like I’ve had to move my blogging schedule around again. No, it’s not because I’ve got lockdown brain and writer’s block this time; it’s because I got engaged! Surprise, world! It was a complete and utter (but welcome) surprise. After being with my boyfriend for five and a half years, living together […]

Meet My Houseplants! | Plant Care, Tips, & Tricks

Meet My Houseplants!

With my love of floaty skirts and overwhelming need to be the ‘mum friend’, it was eventually going to happen… That’s right folks, I’m what the cool kids are calling a ‘plant mom’. As soon as lockdown hit, I got my first houseplant, and since then my plant habit has slowly been getting out of […]

Five Small But Sustainable Changes You Can Make | rosie abigail

Five Small But Sustainable Changes You Can Make | rosie abigail

I’m gonna come straight out and say it – if you aren’t making some sustainable changes to your life, what the heck are you doing? I’m not on about turning your life upside down, living in a vegan tree-house in the forest, and turning your toilet into a compost pile. I mean, smaller, more realistic […]

Use Your Privilege.

Use your privilege.

I had scheduled a happy-go-lucky blog post today about small and sustainable changes I’d made in my life. But to post something so light and cheery seemed so disingenuous to me.  For those stumbling across this post in the future, or simply those who have not been looking at the news, eight days ago, George […]

April 2020 Favourites | Style, Audiobooks, & more!

Just like that, another month of lockdown passes. I swear this month lasted about a week. Or all my weeks blurring into one?… Anyway, all I know is that May is nearly over and June is almost here. I’ve been struggling to adjust to the abnormal level of heat we’ve been having (thanks global warming), […]

What is Mid-Size? | Style, Fashion, and Body Positivity

To paraphrase Mary Poppins, ‘I am practically average in every way’ – physically, at least! I am the average height, average bra size, and average clothing size for a woman in the UK, which obviously means my body type is not reflected in fashion at all. Makes sense, right?  Typically, the fashion industry caters towards […]

Good Things: Lockdown Edition

Good Things: Lockdown Edition - rosie abigail

Recently, I’ve been looking hard to find the good in things; the silver linings, the positives among the negatives. Why? Well, I’m tired of being sad at the state of the world! That’s not to say I’m ignoring what’s going on, not at all. Just amongst the deaths and politics of our current Coronavirus induced […]

Antidepressants and Me | rosie abigail

Antidepressants and Me - Sertraline

Salbutamol and Seretide for asthma, antihistamines and adrenaline for allergies, Codeine and Prednisolone for flare ups, and Sertraline for my brain. More specifically, Sertraline for chronic anxiety and clinical depression. Those are the medications that rattle around in my bag and go with me wherever I go. I’m kind of a package deal – “The […]
